In no part of the household realm has such advancement been made, as in the variety and production of convenient and labor saving appliances for the kitchen. A desirable BREAD AND PASTRY BOARD is one of the most important health and labor saving devices yet to be introduced, as the ordinary wooden board is unhealthy, laborious and wasteful, and in every respect unsatisfactory. It there fore .snves the agent great pleasure to of fer to the house-wives of this vicinity the patent Non-Absorbent Bread and Pas try Board, the triumph of simplicity and perfection, an ideal board on which to prepare bread, pastry and other food. It is hygienic and sanitary, having a highly polished metalic kneading and rolling surface, microbes nor disease germs cannot enter. It is easily and quickly cleaned with a damp cloth, no scraping nor scouring being required, as dough will not adhere to it. ffo more flour is required than is necessary to tem per the dough, the gqod results of which are well known, while butter, lard and liquids can be mixed without being ab sorbed. No bad odors from previous use nor soft fibrous surface to become rancid and foul. Being extremely light and at tractive, it is acknowledged by all to be superior to the heavy and expensive slabs frequently used, thus making it the only practical, non-absorbeut board ever offered for domestic use.

AN UNFAILING SIGN THAT NATURE 1$ APPEALING When Nature is overtaxed, she has her own way of giving notice that assist ance is needed. She does not ask for help until it is impossible to get along without it. Boils and pimples are an indication that the system is accumulating impurities which rnn nri n must be gotten rid of ; thoy are an urgent appeal for assistance lUn (iLLr ? ?a warning that can not safely be ignored. To neglect to purify the blood at this time means more than the annoyance of painful boils and unsightly pimples. If these impurities are allowed to remain, the system succumbs to any ordinary illness, and is unable to withstand the many ailtpents which are so prevalent during spring and summer. Mrs. L. Gentile, 2004 Second Avenue, Seattle, Wash , says: " I was afflicted for a long time with pimples, which were very annoying, as they disfigured my face fearfully. After using many other remedies in vain. S S. S. promptly and thoroughly cleansed my blood, and now I rejoice in a good complexion, which I never had before." Capt. W. H. Dunlap, of the A. G. S. R. R., Chattanooga. Tenn., writes: " Several boils and carbuncles broke out upon me, causing great pain and annoyance. My blood seemed to be in a riotous condition, and nothing I took seemed to do any good. Six bottles of S. S S. cured me completely and my blood has been perfectly pure eve/ since." S. S. S. FOR THE BLOOD is the best blood remedy, because it is purely vegetable and is the only one that is absolutely freo from potash and mercury. It promptly purifies the blood and thoroughly cleanses the system, builds up the general health and strength. It cures Scrofula, Eczema,"Cancer, Rheuma tism. Tetter. Boils, Sores, etc., by going direct to the cause of the trouble and forcing out all impure blood. Books free to any addreos by the Swift Specific Co., Atlanta, Ga.
